On Sunday, March 11th Keaton Newsom’s Mother hosted a celebration of his life at her new event venue in Dallas, Chijmes.
People from all over the world came to celebrate and reminisce a person that was so special to all of us. Thank you so much Andra for allowing us to celebrate our dear friend and thank you to all of Keaton’s family that took the time to come over to us, his friends, and express their appreciation for us and what rollerblading meant to him.
This was a very tough weekend for us all and I hope that this piece can put a smile on everybody’s face as we reflect on our brother. Please donate to the
GoFundMe Keaton’s Mother has started if you can. The proceeds go toward building or repairing a skatepark in his name.

This year I decided last minute to do a CORT edit and ended up with over 100 clips to filter through. Filming sessions like these has always been fun because there is literally no pressure to it and everybody is just having a good time. This one is a bit long but I hope you enjoy it. Big thanks to everybody who makes CORT what it is. - Anthony Medina.
Additional Filming: Foogie Bartels & Timona Kasue. Titles: Abbee Rickman. Songs: Dead Ghosts - Off the Hook, Wakes - Widows.
Once a year to kick off the summer right, Smiley and Dom gather everybody in the Colorado blading scene together for some fun blading, good burgers, and other shenanigans here in Fort Collins.
Days before the event, many people go camping together in the nearby mountains for what has become tradition as “The Corn Tour”. Enjoy what myself, Ant Medina, and Timona Kasue have put together for you guys. See ya next year! - Austin Bartels.
